FAMOUS INTERNATIONAL FASHION DESIGNERS
special winter collectionf for women by calvin klein - Calvin Klein Inc. Calvin Klein is an American fashion house founded by the fashion designer Calvin Klein. The company is headquartered in Midtown Manhattan, New York City and is currently owned by Phillips-Van Heusen.
In 1968, Klein founded Calvin Klein Limited, a coat shop in the York Hotel in New York City, with $10,000. The first Calvin Klein collection was a line of "youthful, understated coats and dresses" featured at the New York City store, Bonwit Teller. In September 1969, Klein appeared on the cover of Vogue magazine.
In 1973, the year he won the first three consecutive Coty awards, Calvin Klein emerged as a top designer who had his finger on the pulse of American women. Although Klein designed dresses, like his 1973 strapless tube of black matte jersey, most of his evening looks reamined fairly casual. By 1975 Calvin Klein had become a celebrity, and he changed his somewhat homespun earlier image (a 1973 advertisement quoted him as saying about his new collection, "I made a lot of things that go with things.”) for a more glamorous one.Over three decades in the fashion business, Calvin Klein has risen to the status of a fashion icon in the U.S. Together with Ralph Lauren and Donna Karan, they dominate the New York fashion scene.Over three decades in the fashion business, Calvin Klein has risen to the status of a fashion icon in the U.S. Together with Ralph Lauren and Donna Karan, they dominate the New York fashion scene.
